Phoenix Contact introduced RIFLINE Complete, a modular ice-cube-style relay system available as either completely-assembled modules or as individual components. The relays are equipped with Phoenix Contact's push-in wire termination technology, which reduces wiring time and costs, as no tools are required for insertion. RIFLINE is compatible with Phoenix Contact's Clipline Complete terminal block accessories for bridging, marking and testing, helping to save on component and storage costs.
Electric submersible pumps
Atlas Copco's WEDA electric submersible pumps will make their debut on the American market with a new range consisting of the 04 and 08 drainage pumps, the 04B residual pump and the 04S and 08S sludge/trash pumps. The 04 and 08 are single-phase electric submersible dewatering pumps with maximum flow rate capacities of 66 to 86 gallons per minute and maximum heads of 37 to 50 feet.
Chemineer agitators are playing a key role in six newly-upgraded activated sludge process lanes at Severn Trent Water's WWTW in Birmingham, Ala. Installed in six phases with no disruption to operations, the 24 Chemineer Model 20 GT agitators are successfully homogenizing fluid streams prior to aeration, as well as ensuring there is no return flow from the aeration lanes back into the anoxic zones. Operating 24/7, each agitator utilizes a high-efficiency HE-3 impeller, rotating at a low rpm.
LabStrong Corporation now manufactures a ventgard filter suitable for operation in Thermo Scientific Barnstead water purification system storage reservoirs. The product protects pure water during storage by preventing airborne impurities such as organic vapors, carbon dioxide, alkali, and acid gases from entering the water storage reservoir. The product effectively filters dust and particles as small as 0.2 µm from the air. Under normal operating conditions, the filter will last up to 90 days or until 1,000 gallons of water have been drawn from the water storage reservoir.
The QuickCamp™ System from McElroy allows operators to fuse pipe from 8" IPS to 36" OD (225 mm to 900 mm) day or night during severe weather conditions in a climate-controlled shelter that protects fusion joints from the elements. An operator can load and align pipe by remote control from inside with the MegaMc® PolyHorse® and MegaMc Rollers pipe-handling tools. A 1236/900 or 824/630 fusion carriage can also be moved by up to 18" so the pipe ends can be adjusted for proper face-off when pulling pipe through the shelter.
